This Soup Dumpling Is So Big, You’ll Need A Straw To Slurp It All Up
The secret ingredient? “Love.” (And 11 hours of prep time.)
Jumbo-sized soup dumplings are the latest food to go viral in NYC.
They’re so big that you actually have to (LOL) sip the broth through a straw.
Last week, I braved the line to see what all the fuss was about. TBH I was pretty skeptical. Sure, the dumpling looks cool, but wouldn’t it be impossible to slurp?
As a coffee drinker with burnt tongue PTSD, I was mostly worried about the hotness of the soup. Thankfully, the broth was served at a drinkable, hot-but-not-scalding temperature.
Though the liquid is more delicately seasoned than your standard soup dumpling’s — the broth draws all of its flavor from the seafood, beef, vegetable and chicken, sans MSG — it’s savory and delicious.
“My mom spends a lot of time cooking the broth to make sure the flavor comes from the meat, and that it’s healthy,” owner Yuan Lee said. “It’s home-flavored and basic, but basic is always the best.”
